Question Saving Progress on windows vista?

I'm running Prime95 on Windows Vista (RTM), and if I stop it then continue, exit, or log off without turning it off, it doesn't save what it's done.

Prime95 is currently at P-1 stage 1. It does manage to save its progress sometime, but I'm not sure how to do it manually, or at all. Also, I'm not sure which one of the above saves progress, or if it's none of them.

Any help would be appreciated.

I had similar problems on Vista (x64 version). My issues were due to the NTFS permissions on the folder. If you give Full Control rights to the Users group (Read-only by default in the Program Files folder) you should be OK.
